Have you ever wondered how is it that things work? Why a device is built in a certain way? Why do people think the way they do?
If you do, congratulations. You possess a trait that’s becoming rarer and rarer these days: Curiosity. Or, as I call it, “the gift of asking”.
Asking is part of being human. It’s that instict that says “how does this work and how can I make it better?”
This is the drive that pushes science forward. If you got it, keep it. Exercise it. Ask away.
If you don’t, don’t sweat. You can get it by asking. Ask 10 questions per day, at least. The moment you ask yourself “Why am I doing this?”, that’s the moment you got it.
